LiveCode and Mathematica

I don't know what Mathematica exports. Does it export the code to generate an image for the graph? My guess is it just exports the functions and you would need to plot the results yourself in LC. You also might want to check the license on the code that Mathematica generates before distributing it...

Mathematica also has some of the best plotting functions and matrix functions that I have ever used.  I would like to learn to write an external for plotting graphs and doing some fairly involved financial computations, and use LiveCode to design the front end.  Is this doable?
